Spring 2016 Update

It’s always busy here in NYC. Lots of projects and lots of fun!

So let’s do a nice re-cap.

It’s Spring!!! And I am definitely looking forward to filming in warmer weather, because no one likes filming in the cold.

Since I got back from the holiday season, I worked on a short film titled “Cataclysm” directed by an NBCUniversal intern, Erian Mathis, at the end of January. I played a principle role of the Psychologist.

Last weekend I filmed some intense finale scenes for indie film 1970’s thriller, Thorns for Flowers, as lead, Gretchen. It will be ready in time to screen at the International Soho Festival May 2016! Woo!

Then I have a reading (and filming in April) for the third episode of nerdy web-series, Three Days of Glory, as principle role, cosplayer Nina Collins.

The other week I got a few callbacks for a National Commercial in which all information is confidential, but I had a really great time working with the commercial director and House Casting, NYC.

I was also involved in a workshop of a new musical by Greg Bonsignore (up and coming lyricist and director of recent Off Broadway show, Atomic) in conjunction with BMI Musical Theater Workshop. The music was catchy and hilarious. Can’t wait to see their production come together!

And finally, I performed in Love Creek’s Off Broadway One Act of “The Power and The Glory” as lead, nervous wreck Wanda. Plenty of physical comedy with great laughs! Well written script.

           So Spring is off to a great start with all my weekends through May filled with film shoots (Three Days of Glory and Thorns for Flowers), and hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in some little projects in-between.

Off Off Broadway

Love Creek Productions

I am happy to announce that I am now a company member at an Off Off Broadway theater called Love Creek Productions!

Happy Dance!

I am looking forward to working on new works with new directors here in NYC! This is why I moved here. I am really glad to be getting involved in stage theater again. It is my home after all!

My counselor prescribes 4 hours of rehearsal a day.

Someday soon I will level up to Off Broadway, but for now, I am going to enjoy every minute of the my actor journey.

Close enough.

Happiness is not wanting what you don’t have, it’s enjoying what you got.

Another opening, another show. Cheers!
